FORT MCMURRAY, Alta. — Trimac Transportation has inked a deal to transport a “significant volume” of limestone aggregate for Hammerstone Corp. in Fort McMurray, Alta.

“The Hammerstone contract enhances Trimac’s market presence in the Fort McMurray region. As a result of this award and the existing products and services we perform in this key economic hub of Alberta, we anticipate additional growth opportunities and employment for our professional drivers,” said Ed Malysa, president and COO of Trimac.

Trimac expects the new deal to generate about $36 million in revenue over the length of the three-year contract. The agreement marks the beginning of a new strategic partnership with Hammerstone, Trimac said in a release. It anticipates its limestone aggregate hauling operations will reach full capacity in the third quarter of 2012.

Hammerstone owns and operates a limestone quarry with more than 750 million tonnes of reserves in the heart of Alberta’s oil sands.
